I'm THRILLED to announce I'm still an Island Batik Ambassador.
I'm even more thrilled to share that Accuquilt, Hobbs and Aurifil Thread are also sponsoring our monthly challenges.
There are a few requirements for being an Ambassador, and I'm so happy to be accepted again. I love creating with these products, and sharing them. I'm so honored to be among the 50 Ambassadors this year.
There's a secret/private group on Facebook where we can share info and ask questions, and while we were waiting for the announcement as to who was accepted for 2019, a flurry of messages were popping up because we were getting shipping notices, but not the final "you're accepted" announcements. That was so much fun for us, but probably not for Island Batik, and our new contact, Kim, because it was a little confusing. Then we got 2 big boxes delivered. 2! One from Island Batik, and the other from Accuquilt! That was a total surprise. Did I mention the fabric box was over 24 lbs? There's over 30 yards of fabric! And 5 battings, 3 in queen size. And thread! Then we get the Ready Set, GO! box.
So generous and so much fun in store.
I'll be sharing more, with other photos along the way, but here's my unboxing video. My brother, John, was visiting and he's a retired professional videographer and editor (he's done some of the Fashion Week specials for HBO and worked for them for years). But he had to use my older Sony Handycam and was unable to do the best editing because my computer and program is limited. We tried. Plus, I had been really sick for a number of days before, and my voice was a little raspy and catchy. I'm surprised I didn't start coughing.
Unfortunately, the Eleanor Burns book, included with the GO! system, was edited out. I'm looking forward to seeing all the designs and blocks. I have a number of other GO! dies and 2 Cube companion boxes, as well. I can't wait to play and design something fun.
Special Thanks to Island Batik, Hobb's Batting, Aurifil and Accuquilt for this wonderful opportunity to share products with others.
I also contacted Bonnie, who was comment 134, the number chosen by Random.org for the winner on my Getaway blog hop post. I will be sending her a fun assortment of batiks.
I'll share a photo before it goes in the mail.
Thanks so much for visiting, and please follow me by email and on Facebook and Instagram (MaryMackMadeMine) for all the fun to come.
